About this book

The possible importance of volatile alkyl and hydride derivates in environmental processes has only begun to be explored, and the literature on these compounds (especially the alkyls), while substantial, is widely diffused through many professional journals. This book will provide a critical, concise review on these compounds and will point out future possibilities and needs. It should appeal to environmental scientists, geochemists, toxicologists and persons interested in waste receycling.
